I set up mostdeffo in Liverpool in October 2018. It’s main purpose is artist management, but the company also provides artist development mentorship to promising artists and bands along with industry support to existing organisations based in Liverpool. I am attending Eurosonic Noorderslag on behalf of the roster of artists that I manage, along with representing Liverpool-based independent record label Modern Sky UK. 

Modern Sky are looking for overseas licensing opportunities, so if you’d like to discuss the possibility of working with them, let me know.

I am attending Eurosonic this year to build my international network and further my knowledge of the ever evolving live sector. I want to ensure that I can provide the artists that I represent with key national and international opportunities that help build their career and I hope to do the same for international artists who wish to build an audience in the UK, especially around the North West of England.

I am also a member of the newly formed Liverpool City Region Music Board which officially launches to the public on 21 January 2019. If you’d like to discuss opportunities in Liverpool or want to know more about the formation of the music board supporting Liverpool’s UNESCO City of Music status, I’m more than happy to have a chat.
